THE death of a man found lying in an Alloa garden at the weekend is being treated as unexplained by police.

Emergency services were alerted to the unresponsive male discovered in a garden on Engelen Drive early on Sunday morning.

Police and two ambulances attended and the 34-year-old was then taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital, where he sadly passed away.

It is thought that he may have lay out overnight after becoming unwell. The Advertiser understands there is no evidence of foul play, as police continue with their inquiries.

A post mortem will now take place to ascertain the cause of death.

“The 34-year-old was found requiring medical attention in the street at Engelen Drive at around 10 am on Sunday, February 11 and was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital where he later passed away.

“Inquiries into the full circumstances surrounding this incident are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to come forward.”

A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesperson confirmed: “We received a call at 0955 hours on Sunday, February 11, to attend an address at Engelen Drive, Alloa. We dispatched two ambulances to the scene and a male in his 30s was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital.”
